St. Francis Xavier Window

Window of one round headed lancet light.

This window portrays St. Francis Xavier as he lies dying holding a crucifix and rosary. Christ (with a cruciform/tri-radiant halo) is appearing to him and shining heavenly light upon him. Christ is surrounded by seven angels. The upper curved panel contains a cross on a shield and a decorative scroll with an inscription, stating the Saint’s name, Francis Xavier. The bottom panel has architectural details and contains and dedication panel.

In the bottom panel of the window: “Of your charity pray for the souls of Francis and Hugh Curran to whose memory this window has been erected by their sorrowing parents”.
